New Doors, Toto, Simple Minds and More!

Toto - Greatest Hits: 40 Trips Around the Sun
Toto – Greatest Hits: 40 Trips Around the Sun

I have just put 14 newly-released classic rock tracks into high rotation in the playlist. Start streaming now (it’s always free – and commercial free!) and listen for songs from the following recently released albums:

The Doors – Live At the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 … this recording of the doors last live appearance prior to the death of Jim Morrison has finally been released. Listen for the tracks Break On Through (To the Other Side) and Ship Of Fools. Read the review here.

Toto – Greatest Hits: 40 Trips Around the Sun … This greatest hits package celebrates 40 years since the release of their first album. Listen for the new tracks included on the album Spanish Sea and Struck By Lightning. Read the review here.

Simple Minds – Walk Between Worlds … a brand new 18th studio album from the band that was so popular in the 1980’s. Listen for the tracks Magic and Summer. Read the review here.

John Oates – Arkansas … this member of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame as part of Hall & Oates has just released his latest project. It is a distinctly different sound for someone remembered as slick and soulful. Listen for the track Dig Back Deep. Read the review here.

Kayak – Seventeen … one of Holland’s biggest bands in the 1970s – they are still turning out solid prog rock – even after 45 years. Listen for the tracks La Peregrina (She Wanders Alone) and Somebody. Read the review here.

Steve Hackett – Wuthering Heights: Live In Birmingham … The new live album from the former Genesis guitar player features his own solo compositions, as well as several Genesis tracks – including the entire Wind and Wuthering. Listen for the track Every Day. Read the review here.

Rick Springfield – The Snake King … I know, I know – you are asking “Rick Springfield?” Yes – Rick Springfield. This is a very solid album featuring great songs. Listen for the track Little Demon (Parts 1 and 2) and make up your own mind! Read the review here.

Joe Perry – Sweetzerland Manifesto … this solo album from the Aerosmith guitar player features guest vocals from Cheap Trick‘s Robin Zander and The New York Doll‘s David Johansen. Listen for the track Aye, Aye, Aye. Read the review here.

Jeff Lynne’s ELO – Wembley Or Bust … released a while back – this album features live versions of ELO classics, as well as the track I have just added into the rotation – a cover of The Traveling Wilburys song Handle With Care. Read the review here.

I have also added into high rotation the latest single from Alice Cooper‘s latest album Paranormal. Listen for the track The Sound of A.

Choice Classic Rock – classic rock like you’ve never heard it before!
